    Hello all,

    I have a lot of movies and series on a harddrive connected to my tower computer.
    I'd like to access them from my Playbook, so I could watch without having to copy the files to my playbook.
    I generally use MovieSrtPlayer as I watch them with Portuguese subtitles.

    Is there any any way of accessing the files if the Playbook and the Pc are in the same wireless network?

    Yes, although I doubt that you'll be able to stream to MovieSrtPlayer. You'll need an app to do it, StreamingNow, Splashtop, LAN File Explorer, ES File Explorer and probably a few others.

    I've recently stumbled upon X-Plore which seems to do a great job of starting videos from my network drive - even mkv files. I believe it will also open pictures and music, but I haven't tried them yet.

    How about using Slashtop and accessing the whole PC altogether?

    I use StreamingNow. It works very well.
    I don't use subtitles though.

    Yeah. X-Plore is another one, and it will also stream music and open pics. In fact, I started a thread about it a couple of weeks ago along with a link to a working bar file, since finding a working version of X-Plore was not so easy.

    Hello all,

    I've downloaded StreamingNow and it works very well.
    It's just what I wanted.

    Thanks.
